first_imgShell’s lack of expenditure on green energy projects calls oil companies’ commitments to combat climate change into question Takeover blow impacted on Royal Dutch Shell’s green energy targetsShell was dealt a major blow in its plans to invest in clean energy projects in 2019, when it failed in its attempts to buy Dutch utility company Eneco.The Rotterdam-based firm has an extensive renewable energy portfolio, which would have boosted Shell’s spending figures towards its target.It would have added to the company’s previous acquisitions of UK energy supplier First Utility, French renewable energy developer, Eolfi, and its 49% stake in Australian solar company ESCO Pacific.But Japanese multinational firm Mitsubishi put a spanner in the works when it sealed a $4.1bn deal for Eneco in November last year.Despite this setback and Shell currently not being on course to hit its green energy targets, the company has said it is aiming to spend between $2bn and $3bn as part of its new energies division each year from 2021 to 2025. How much has Royal Dutch Shell invested in its green energy targets?The green energy targets set out by Shell are among the most ambitious in the oil industry.Its New Energies strategy covers several areas including electricity, wind and solar, electric vehicle charging, and initiatives to encourage the adoption of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles.But despite the oil major’s appetite to invest in new technologies, only 10% of its spending pot has been distributed to the strategy.Since laying out the plans in 2016, Shell spent a reported $2bn on the construction of a low-carbon energy and electricity generation business in the same year — ensuring it was on course to meet its targets.Shell has spent 10% of its overall spending on its new energies strategy (Credit Raysonho)In 2017, the firm informed investors it would spend between $1bn and $2bn annually on developing a clean energy business until the end of 2020, an increase on previous plans to spend up to $1bn a year across the same time frame.But the firm is believed to be considerably short of its green investment targets, having so far met about a third of its $6bn goal.In that same time frame, The Guardian says Shell has spent more than $120bn on developing fossil fuel projects, despite global efforts to reduce the use of such high-polluting sources.Data from Norway-based consultancy firm Rystad Energy shows Europe’s five biggest oil companies – Shell, Total, BP, Eni, and Equinor – have so far spent a combined total of $5.5bn on renewable energy projects.Last year alone, their combined total budget was $90bn — raising further questions around the major firms’ commitment to combating climate change.Greenpeace Netherlands’ climate and energy campaigner, Kees Kodde, claims the latest developments “show that Shell is not changing in any meaningful way”.“Contrary to what is needed to stop the climate emergency, Shell is planning to increase its production of oil and gas by 38% by 2030,” he added.“It is investing most of its money in countries that are turning away from the Paris Agreement, like the US and Brazil.“Greenpeace and other NGOs are taking Shell to court. We filed the summons in April 2019 and we expect the first hearing in the case in 2020.“As long as governments remain unable to steer oil companies in a sustainable direction, we hope the courts will.” Its fourth quarter update announcement adds to the roughly $18bn in writedowns that Shell has already disclosed this year (Credit: Royal Dutch Shell) Royal Dutch Shell is at risk of falling short on its plans to invest in green energy projects by the end of 2020, according to reports.The slow progress being made by the British-Dutch oil and gas major is likely to raise questions as to whether companies in the industry are acting quickly enough to combat increasing climate concerns.Shell’s investment target for green energy projects was set at between $4bn and $6bn between 2016 and the end of 2020 — but with less than a year to go, The Guardian says the sum is “well below” those figures. Royal Dutch Shell’s commitments to cutting carbon emissionsAlthough the oil giant’s green energy projects are currently stalling, last year the firm announced plans to halve its net carbon footprint by 2050.Before then, the company is aiming for a 20% reduction by 2035 compared with its 2016 level as it seeks to show investors its intentions of staying in line with the spirit and ambitions of 2015’s Paris Agreement.One way in which Shell plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions is by using carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, which collects and holds CO2 deep underground, therefore preventing it from polluting the atmosphere.It is also in the midst of working with its partners to discover ways of using the stored CO2 once it has been captured, and claims CCS technology will be pivotal to the global climate response.last_img read more

first_imgGet ready to tap! No, I am not talking about a dance revival but this concerted effort to stop us using money and keep us using cards, thereby making the banks very rich indeed. On the one hand, using cards apparently makes us all spend more, but on the other, it also pushes up fraud levels considerably, which we – not the banks – all pay for.However, I have to say I am all in favour of the latest idea, Mastercard’s new Tap & Go, which we describe on pages 12-13. As the name suggests, you simply tap the card (not a number) on a reader and go! It only works with payments of under £10 and seems to me an excellent way of reducing shop assistant fraud, waiting time for customers and, best of all, the need for both shoppers and till staff to sort out small change. And it sounds especially useful for small retail purchases, such as bakery takeaway! The first trial will start in June and will last six months. The system works by means of radio waves, with the user simply tapping the card on a terminal and payment being made in less than a second. Security has yet to be tested – that is the whole point of a trial – but with such a low transaction ceiling, it should not be a major problem worldwide, as it is with the higher-amount debit and credit cards.Still on the retail front, I am delighted to see Greenhalgh’s both revamping and expanding its 42 shops (pg 4). I do hope that, at some stage, Improve, the skills sector council responsible for food training, will consult Greenhalgh’s David Smart, among others, because he cares passionately about bakery training and the results are there to see in his successful business.On other issues, it will come as little surprise to most to see that Warburtons is among those having to put up prices to keep pace with higher energy costs. We have published enough charts in this magazine to show how consumers overseas pay considerably more for their bread. A good product always merits a good price. As far as I am concerned, some supermarkets’ latest EDLP (every day low pricing) policy squeezes suppliers far more than it rewards shoppers.We should let good products stand – on both merit and price!last_img read more

first_imgA package of UK aid support to Lebanon will create jobs for local people and Syrian refugees and improve infrastructure to boost economic development, Middle East Minister Alistair Burt announced today (6 April 2018).During the CEDRE conference (Conférence Economique pour le Développement, par les Réformes et avec les Entreprises) being held in Paris, he called on other donors to follow the UK’s lead and step up their international support to help the Government of Lebanon deliver their plans for economic growth and improved support for businesses.The UK’s support will boost stability in Lebanon, which is on frontline of the multiple crises in the Middle East, and help Lebanon continue to host 1.5 million Syrian refugees in the eighth year of the Syria crisis.Speaking in Paris, on the initiation of President Emmanuel Macron, Minister Burt announced that the UK will:• provide grants to create jobs and deliver infrastructure projects in Lebanon;• deliver a new programme to help small businesses grow and hire more Lebanese and Syrian employees to give people hope for the future;• deliver a programme to boost investment in local infrastructure to improve the delivery of services.He said:“The UK cares deeply about the stability and future prosperity of Lebanon. We recognise the enormity of the challenges faced in the region and the extraordinary strength and resilience of Lebanon, not just in weathering these challenges but in providing, at no small cost, shelter, education, an opportunities to work for so many who have fled appalling violence, fear and destruction.But today is not solely about the Syria crisis, and this is not a crisis conference. It is something altogether more hopeful – and in some ways at least – more challenging. It is about turning a corner, reinvigorating growth in the economy, and unlocking the immense potential and possibility of the Lebanese people to help the country stand on its own two feet.The path ahead will not be easy. But the benefits are clear. And the UK – as a strong supporter of Lebanon – remains committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with Lebanon now and into the future.”Further information• Today’s £40 million package of support is a new allocation from the UK’s response to the Syria crisis. The UK is a leading donor in the humanitarian response. To date we have committed over £2.46 billion in humanitarian funding to the region.• It includes a £15m programme in partnership with the Lebanese Government to support to small businesses; £15m for the Lebanon Host Community Support Programme delivered through UNDP and the Ministry of Social Affairs to invest in local infrastructure; and £10 million worth of grant financing to create jobs and deliver infrastructure projects.• You can find more information on the UK’s humanitarian response to the Syria crisis herelast_img read more

first_imgUniversity of Georgia food scientist Anand Mohan says attending his two-day workshop will help those deciding whether or not to start a new food business to come to a decision.“At the end of the class, most graduates determine they have two options: they either say, ‘No, a new food business is not for me’ or ‘Yes, I can work it out and get my product to market,’” he said.The “Starting a New Food Business” workshop will be Oct. 6-7 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the UGA campus in Griffin, Georgia. The cost is $150 and includes instructional materials, lunch both days and refreshments.The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences has previously offered the course as a one-day training. To encourage more participation and to meet new food company owners’ needs, Mohan has “revamped” the workshop.“It is now two, full days, and we cover a broad range of topics, from regulations, to food safety, to product development, marketing and choosing a co-packer or shared kitchen,” he said. As a result of the UGA workshop, 25 to 30 new food products have been launched in the past two years. The class is designed for Georgians, but typically attracts participants from Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, he said. In addition to the breadth of material covered, participants will benefit from the expertise of the instructors. UGA faculty and representatives from the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will lead the workshop. “Top-of-the-line faculty will be teaching the course in a commercial kitchen,” Mohan said. “In the last three workshops, we had a chef demo with a Food Network chef, and the UGA Small Business Development Center did a session on business plans. It’s really a team effort.”The workshop includes hands-on demonstrations and a tour of the UGA Food Product Innovation and Commercialization Center (Food PIC) in Griffin. Newly named Food PIC Director Kirk Kealey will also lead sessions. Kealey spent the last 30 years helping to develop and launch products like Mountain Dew, Tropicana juices and Dove Chocolate. Now he’ll do the same for small and large food businesses in Georgia and across the Southeast through UGA’s Food PIC. The center is designed to help new food business owners with product development, packaging, food safety, consumer acceptance and marketing.“This workshop is so popular because we give participants one-on-one attention and allow them time to network together. And the final day includes a two-hour panel discussion when they can ask any questions they still have,” said Mohan.Participants are encouraged to bring samples of their own food products for tasting on the final day of the workshop.Mohan calls the second day of the workshop the “high energy day.” “By this time, they all know they have the same problems and the same dreams, and they are beginning to open up to one another,” he said. The new food business workshop has also been offered in Tifton and Savannah, Georgia, and future sessions have been requested for the Albany, Georgia, area and Atlanta. “We have more demand for the class than we can fulfill,” he said.Register for the workshop online at For more information on other UGA food science Cooperative Extension courses, see the calendar at or call (706) 542-2574.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo April 12, 2010 The thirty boys and girls of the Liberté-Égalité (Liberty-Equality) orphanage in Port-au-Prince are happy to see anyone in uniform – in our case, a group of military personnel from the United States Southern Command and a reporter from Diálogo – because they know that they are going to receive aid in the form of clothing, food, and medicine. Liberté-Égalité is run by a French non-governmental organization of the same name that also administers a school in Port-au-Prince. More than a thousand non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have worked in Haiti since the 12 January earthquake. The director of the orphanage, Marie Christine Bayle, who has worked for the institution in Haiti for more than ten years, explains that without the aid from military personnel from different parts of the world, the NGO would not be able to keep the school and the orphanage functioning. “The military personnel are here not to make war, but on a peace mission. In addition, they always come, like today, to distribute contributions that they have often made themselves. It’s emotionally moving.” The children at the Liberté-Égalité orphanage are adopted only by individuals in France and Haiti, but there are many other adoption organizations open to any country. “Now that the situation is even more complicated, due to the devastation of the earthquake, it’s very important that the little ones find a home,” Marie Christine said.last_img read more

first_img Who is ordering the terrorist attacks? It began with a phone call from a member of the Partners for Prosperity network to the Colombian National Army on August 19: According to information provided by the informant, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) was planning on blowing up an important bridge in the Huila region. The tip was specific and thorough: Three people in a Dimax pick-up truck had approached the La Seca bridge in the municipality of Guadalupe, in southern Huila. A man had exited the truck with a black package in his hands, which he placed underneath the bridge before returning to the vehicle. Reacting quickly to the intelligence, soldiers attached to the 12th Special Energy and Roadways Battalion went to the site and found the black package the man from the truck had placed under the bridge. The package was a cylinder bomb. Soldiers immediately jammed cellular signals in the area, since terrorists typically activate such devices with cellphones. They then destroyed the bomb with a controlled explosion. The tip and fast response by Army soldiers prevented a potentially devastating attack by a bomb containing about 50 kg of AN/FO – an industrial explosive mixture – and shrapnel. The explosive device had a lethal radius of 40 meters, which means it was strong enough to destroy the bridge, which connects Huila and Caquetá. Some analysts argue that the recent FARC attacks might have been ordered by splinter elements of the terrorist organization, rather than the group’s commanders. “The FARC have been divided by the losses they suffered against the Colombian government forces. These divisions could create isolated, dissident extremist groups carrying out these attacks to derail a peace process [between the Colombian government and the FARC being conducted in La Habana, Cuba] that is against their interests,” said Héctor Chávez Villao, a security analyst at the University of Guayaquil. “The high command is aware that the government security forces are superior and they gain no advantage from these provocations just now when they are negotiating a peace settlement in La Habana, when they could become political players in Colombia.” Other analysts believe that it is difficult to know, at least for now, who is behind the attacks. “It is hard to identify whether these attacks come from the FARC high command in order to demonstrate they still have power and gain some leverage with the government during negotiations, or whether the attacks are being perpetrated by smaller groups or cells that are acting independently,” said Yadira Gálvez, a security analyst at the National Autonomous National University of Mexico (UNAM). “We have seen that cooperation with the populace has been a key point in the military’s efforts against these organizations and in the peace process. We have received assistance from the people that has allowed us to identify their areas of operation. Now the FARC no longer enjoy the protections that they had when this ideological battle began. People are tired of living through war and feeling threatened by these organizations,” concluded Gálvez. That’s how they negotiate?????? We need to unite the borders and honest guards who don’t take bribes. Wake up, Brazil.center_img By Dialogo October 01, 2014last_img read more

first_imgOrganizations should always expect turnover – that’s business. The problem is that some organizations do some things so badly that the turnover involves their best and brightest employees. Here are 5 reasons why the best employees leave organizations:They’re constantly being told “no.” Let’s face it. There are only so many times that a person can be rejected before they start to question whether or not they’re in the right place. “No” is part of business. No one is disputing that. But instead of a snap-reaction of “no,” perhaps companies can find ways to arrive at a compromise or even a “yes” from time to time.They were lied to during the interview process. “Yes, we want to hire a change agent,” “We want you to shake things up and make them better,” “You’ll have a lot of latitude in your decision-making authority.” How many of us have heard these things only to find out once we started on the job that none of it was actually true? I’ve been through this personally and it just sucks. Great employees will not work for organizations that lie to them.Poor Leadership. This is a big one. Great employees want to work for great leaders. They will seek out and follow great leaders. They will also shun poor leaders. If your leadership isn’t absurdly great, your best and brightest will simply leave. Count on it. continue reading » 55SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
